Where a and [tex]{a^{\dagger}}[/tex] denote the usual annihilation and creation operators. The questions suggests acting both sides with |n> but even if I did that and showed LHS=...=RHS then that still doesn't prove the original expression (we can't reverse the implies sign if you see what I mean). So I'm stuck as to what to do.
